Continuity mistake: During the battle at the end, Cyclops uses the crystal statue he brought with him in the fight by throwing it into the air and uses it to refocus his optic blasts on a crowd of attackers. After the battle is over he gives the statue to Dr. Prescott without ever having retrieved it. (00:18:55 - 00:20:20)

Other mistake: When the group of mutants are listening to Solarr's speech, in one continuous shot of ten of them that lasts at least four seconds, they are all standing completely still, not one of them moving a muscle, blinking or making the slightest adjustment in their facial expressions.

Audio problem: After Cyclops crash lands, the shot changes to Watchdog observing the crash on his monitor with a voice-over saying "Scratch one trouble maker," except that the voice speaking is that of Solarr and not Watchdog.

Other mistake: At one point after Cyclops ejects from his mini-jet, you can see that he is just floating in midair instead of descending back to the ground. (00:03:15)

Plot hole: At the speed Cyclops is traveling in his mini-jet when he passes Watchdog's tower, he would have been long out of range before Watchdog could force him out of the air into a crash landing, considering that Watchdog had to take time to alert Solarr of Cyclops' presence and be ordered to knock him out of the air.
